Fine Motor Fun - Pipe Cleaners, Pasta & Colanders

Do you ever need just a few minutes of peace? All you need are pipe cleaners, some pasta (penne or ziti work best) and a colander or two and you've got it!

I simply showed Little C how to push the pipe cleaners into the holes of the colander and lace the pasta onto the pipe cleaners and then helped her do it once or twice. After that she was good to go and occupied for a short while. It's great fine motor practice for little hands and gives you that short break you deserve - if you're lucky they'll become so involved in the activity you may even have time to wash all those dishes piled in the sink before they want your attention again!
